Addicted to the blues

BluesMatters 2017


Got no dime in my pocket, got no penny in my purse

Got no dime in my pocket, but things could be much worse

Yet this leaves me with no bruise

I'm addicted to the blues


Got no stylish motorcar, takin' me from here to there

Got no stylish motorcar, music take me anywhere

Got no fancy blue suede shoes

I'm addicted to the blues


Got no slick folks onboard, on no sailboat on no sea

Got no slick folks onboard, s'not my kind of company

I'm not hooked on any cruise

I'm addicted to the blues


Got no yuppie job in town, and no cracking top-class wage

Got no yuppie job in town, makes me feel like in a cage

Don't need to blow no fuse

I'm addicted to the blues


Got no reason to complain, it's my life after all

Got no reason to complain, you can join and have a ball

Don't need no ill-advised excuse

I'm addicted to the blues
